Computer Controlled Coffee Roaster

This Crazy Computer controlled coffee roaster has been developed by Matthew Williams. The machine is also as strange as its name.

The basic PID of the device is a Fuji PXR4 that can be used with a laptop or a computer via a USB port.

In the roaster a fan is used to control the roast process and the roast chamber is made using bakelite tube and a 3' diameter Glass tube.

For the heat to dissipate without damaging the whole setup Matthew has used a high temperature RTV Silicone.

There is a screen at the bottom of the device that can be used to empty the roaster and get freshly roasted beans for a great cup of coffee on a cool and breezy winter morning.
